I guess you could say that I was a ‘late starter’ in Real Estate. It wasn’t a career I’d even considered (no better than a car salesman! and trusted even less) and when I did get the bug, I was just too damn scared to take on a job where there was no wage to back me up. The courage to make that leap of faith came when my diverse background and life experience had built my confidence, skills, abilities into a strong platform and my health had become a serious factor. I realised that I needed a job which was non-ageist, not too physical but constantly challenging. I needed a job that was performance based, (where I was totally accountable for my income), where I could use my brains and creativity and I wanted to love what I was doing. Real Estate ticked all the boxes and I gained my qualifications, training with the REIQ. The enthusiasm of the trainers, a father-in-law in real estate and my own passion for people, psychology and research combined with a history of work in a variety of people-based industries to cement the path to my new career.
For the full and unabridged bio, please visit my website to see where I’ve been and how I got here. Suffice it to say that it includes five years each in management, customer service, staff recruitment, training and assessment and ten years in market research and analysis. I’ve written, developed and implemented training programs and assessment criteria and manuals for two different companies; authored an operations manual for an in-house software program (DOS platform … groan) and drafted Workplace Agreements. I’ve studied legal secretarial and conveyancing, hospitality, fashion design, Bachelor of Natural Science (Naturopathy) and obtained both Security Officer and Weapons licenses. I’ve sold door to door, telemarketed and sold life insurance, car insurance and my own craft work at various markets. I’ve been a waitress, bar attendant, secretary-receptionist-personal / administrative assistant, market research field representative, 2IC and trainer in market research, static and armed security guard (cash-in-transit), service station console operator, truck driver and courier driver.
